Lucy Mair - Singing lessons

I teach singing privately at home in Hove and in schools in West and East Sussex and believe passionately that everybody can sing. I love helping my students find their best possible sound and gain confidence and trust in their voices. I also run a monthly singing group for singers who are afraid of performing. 

I sing regularly as a soloist of operatic, recital and oratorio repertoire so take an active interest in the voice, how it works, how it feels and how it changes.

I believe that a free, natural voice is the most beautiful way of singing and my aim when teaching is to help you achieve this, whatever genre you sing. My singing students at home are adults (18 - 90!) and I teach all abilities.

Singing can often feel vulnerable and some people are afraid of coming to singing lessons because of this. I have done some counselling training in order to be able to help those students who find the process of finding their voice particularly difficult. I also help singers with performance anxiety.

If you've been thinking about having lessons because you love singing and want to improve, want to gain confidence either in singing or even in other parts of your life, or just to see if you're a better singer than you think you are, get in touch!

My confidence has improved greatly from lessons with Lucy Mair and I am feeling much more comfortable singing in front of people now.  Lucy's lessons are packed with great tips and exercises for body and voice. Lucy is continually improving her own practice with attendance at workshops and masterclasses and she passes on techniques to us the lucky students.  I've found her to be a very giving teacher with an approachable and fun manner which helps you to get over yourself and just sing!  She'll be a huge miss in the NorthEast.

My lessons with Lucy have really boosted my confidence in my singing. I can now tackle pieces which are technically far beyond what I could sing previously. She is supportive and positive, and seems to have an inexhaustible array of problem-solving techniques, which for me have very much improved the tone of my voice and extended my vocal range, especially the top so that I can sing First Soprano without fear! I'm so glad I booked that trial lesson… (Jackie)

I've taken singing lessons with Lucy for around two and a half years.  I originally went to her so that I could perform a "party piece" at a choir social evening - got interested and now feel confident enough to sing at almost any occasion.  My thanks go to Lucy for tolerating my tantrums and sulking when I've not been able to perform to my satisfaction and for her constant support and good humour.
